Formerly successful rock band THE KINDNESS are trying to record a Christmas song for their comeback single. It’s the height of summer, tempers are fraying and obnoxious lead singer Rob Aidan Casey and his dad Gerald, the officious Bishop Nigel Planer, aren’t helping. So, with the aid of port, cheese and swearing, it’s up to long-suffering manager Martin Matt Berry to save the day.
Directed by John Panton and co-written with Emmy Award winning writer David Quantick (Veep).
Produced by Michael Knowles (‘Away’ starring Timothy Spall was released earlier this year), ably supported by exec producer Matt Tiller (Hebburn, Drunk History).
We are honoured to have the involvement of the band Elbow, who have written a track specifically for the film. Thanks to Jeremy Marshall for the artwork.
